year 1 of university done

Posted on 11 February, 2019 at 4:50 Comments comments (5836)

Phew a lot happened in 2018!

The first year of my arts psychotherapy degree is under my belt and the results were really good. Thankfully my hard work paid off.

Since I lodged the last essay on december 3, I have been working on a number of projects at Canefields Clubhouse and Tammy's art studio.

It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas

Posted on 13 December, 2016 at 23:20 Comments comments (3)

Ahh it's that time of year again when life gets so hectic and everyone feels the need to gather in large groups to celebrate another year!

While I love this a lot, this year is tinged with a little sadness. My eldest son has just moved out of home with his girlfriend 2 whole states away and I find myself walking around the house seeing bits and pieces of what's left of his growing up here and tears form. I kind of think it's not bad to have it happen at this time of year to some extent ...

Conservation practices when creating art

Today I want to talk about a few different considerations that artists have if they want to sell their art and have it last. 

Lately I have been talking to Erin from Artis Pura about stretched canvases that we buy from art supply stores and where they are mass produced, the materials that go into the frame, it's construction and the grade of canvas. 

I had a look a...

Scrappin' with Style @ TJ's

Posted on 21 October, 2016 at 9:45 Comments comments (1)

It was such a pleasure tonight to be teaching a wonderful group of ladies at Scrappin with Style @ TJ's at Mayes Avenue, Logan. 

Tonight we focussed on how to journal emotions. To weave into our art things that we don't feel we can say out loud. To express things through art that we can't express in words. 

So as homework before class everyone came with something they wanted to explore and work through. This is a little bit of art therapy in there. We decided to create s...

Welcome to my New Website

Posted on 14 October, 2016 at 8:30 Comments comments (0)

This is me feeling hopeful in a period of respite between pulling all my hair out and shouting obscenties at my computer screen as yet another function of a website I was hoping would do everything I wanted it to, failed. 

I think I may have aged at least 10 years prematurely trying to find a websi...
